Homosexual bandwagon

To the Editor:

How typical for you to climb aboard the homosexual bandwagon by calling churches to just do what the LGBT community wants.

You have decided that truth and morals are relative. If there was any truth to the claim that homosexuals are born that way, the Genome Project would have found the gene. But it didn’t. The LGBT community shouts louder that it’s about equal rights. That isn’t true.

If this was about rights being denied because of the way people are born – race or color – that would be wrong. This is about a behavioral choice – a behavior that is antithetical to the stable growth of families that are the bedrock of society.

We see the chaos that ensues when families are torn apart, dysfunctional or virtually nonexistent. The gang violence in Chicago shows what damage is done because of nonexistent families. Children have no sense of stability. Depression and suicide in teens has grown astronomically.

This is the result of a nation that has encouraged the disintegration of the family unit. Is a gay or lesbian “family” just as good as a male-female-led family? If a girl is brought up by two dads, where does she learn about womanhood? If a boy is brought up by two moms, where does he learn about manhood?

Don’t ask churches to accept homosexual behavior. It is forbidden, just like lying, cheating, stealing and fornicating. God does love everyone, but it doesn’t mean that He tolerates sin.
